I am a Champlain Park resident (140 Northwestern Ave.) and am familiar to some of you.
I need your help with a charitable act in the community. My 2 children and I have raised a large number of tomato plant seedlings (see attached picture) of 3 varieties.
We would normally be selling them at local school Elmdale’s Annual Spring event but of course this is not possible this year.
We are proposing that for every plant that finds a happy home, we will donate $2.00 to the Parkdale Food Center’s General Operations fund (there are approx. 140 plants).
Vegetable plant giveaway and donation
When: Saturday, May 16, 2020
Where: 140 Northwestern Ave
Obviously, we cannot organize or promote a formal event but were hoping that you would help promote this giveaway in our neighbourhood following the clearly stated guidelines:
- A table with plants will be set up at the end of the driveway of our house at 140 Northwestern Ave.
- Residents are welcomed to take away plants, but no money will change hands – those so inclined can make a financial donation of their own to the Parkdale food center or other Covid-19 affected causes.
- Residents will be encouraged to respect social distancing and walk or drive past without stopping to chat etc…
Thanks for your time.
